    Refused Booking...Not Factory Camper

    I had a booking refused earlier as the campsite owners looked up the registration of my van and as it doesn't show it as a camper/motorhome they refused my booking. This is of course completely their choice but I wondered if others had experienced similar? Is this common practice? My van is a Kombi.

    Dvla And Changing From 9 To 5 Seater Mpv

    I had trouble getting insurance as it was classed as a 9 seater minibus. I took pictures of the van as a 5 seater. I got a video walk around and pictures of the front single seats and the middle 3rd row. I had a rug in the back and no seats. Would DVLA accept that or do I need to have the van...

    Camper Or Not?

    My T6 conversion will NOT have an awning. It will have an Austop pop-top, side windows (but not in tailgate), Cycle rack, colour coded side stripe and pop-top, RIB bed, gas stove, sink etc.. Does the pop-top and / or the absence of an awning mean it can only be registered as a 'van-with-windows'...
